Global Presence Transformation Center Ghana, Africa
Because the heart of a tribal King was touched by the kindness of God, an entire community is being transformed.
Global Presence has established a base in Ghana, Africa called the Transformation Center. This includes a Worship and Training Center, Hope Home (orphanage), and soon will include a Vocational Academy and Private Boarding School. Global Presence acquired the land as a gift from the traditional chiefs who encountered God’s miraculous healing power. Together with the local community, we are working to bring cultural transformation. We have hired and empowered 12 Ghanaian staff in various roles of the Transformation Center. We have taken in 30 orphaned children to be cared for at the Hope Home; they are no longer rejected and abandoned, but are loved and empowered to live confident in the hope and future God has for them.
We believe this is a prototype of more Transformation Centers to be established throughout the earth to disciple and transform nations.
Establishing a dedicated place of God’s Presence

King Miraculously healed In 2011 a team from Global Presence in Madison, WI, first came to Gbefi, Ghana. As is protocol, the team sat before the chiefs and elders of the community to present the purpose of their mission. In this time, Steven Springer, Senior Leader of Global Presence, prayed for the Paramount Chief of Gbefi who was suffering from a severe lung condition. The chief was miraculously healed by the power of God!
50 acres of land given for God’s Kingdom The chief wanted this same power to continue to impact his region, so he gifted Global Presence 50 acres of land. Global Presence has since developed the land to include a Worship and Training Center, Hope Home Orphanage, Private Boarding School and Vocational Academy.
Worship & Training Center Everything flows from the Presence of God. Global Presence opened the first facility of the Transformation Center in 2013: The Worship and Training Center. Here people gather from surrounding communities to pray together, encounter God, and receive training. This place of God’s presence serves as the epicenter from which comes all other work and ministry of the Global Presence Transformation Center.
Hope Home (Orphanage) Pure and undefiled religion before God the Father is this: to care for orphans and widows in their distress (James 1:27) In 2014, Global Presence opened the second facility: The Hope Home (Orphanage). Global Presence has since taken care of 30 children. These children are no longer abandoned or rejected, but are welcomed into a family full of love, where they have found healing, nurturing, and a safe place to be celebrated for who they are. These children are now thriving emotionally, physically, academically, relationally and spiritually. Some of the children have risen from repetitive failing in school to the top of their class. Among their academic accomplishments, they have learned to speak English (the national language of Ghana), to read and to write, and now have a strong basis for continued education. These children pray for the sick and see them recover. They are being raised in the fullness of God’s love and power.
Economic Development through Education and Trade In expanding the Transformation Center, Global Presence will soon open a Vocational Academy and Private Boarding School. The community will continue in economic development through the Vocational Academy as the people receive training and empowerment in various trades. The Private Boarding School will be the first private school in the community of Gbefi, and will provide invaluable education opportunities to more children.
Long-term Goal Our goal is for the Global Presence Transformation Center to become self-sustaining through the agricultural development, the schools, and the businesses which will be a product of the Vocational Academy. As we develop toward this, we are currently sponsored by generous families and business from the United States.
